An organised garage
Maybe you’re finding yourself with a sudden abundance of spare time on your hands. Maybe you’re longing to play that old trombone that you’re sure you packed in there somewhere. Or, maybe, you’re just sick of looking at the mess in your garage each day and you’ve decided now is the time to get things back in order.
Whatever the reason, we’re proud of you. As long as you’re avoiding these garage mistakes that might be putting you in danger.
Check out these ideas to get your garage in order and keep it looking neat.
Wire shelving in the garage
Maximise your garage storage space quickly and easily with simple and inexpensive shelves, baskets and hooks. These garage storage racks will only take you one morning to achieve garage happiness. By the way, if you mount hooks, brackets, and other hardware only on studs, you’re wasting lots of opportunities for garage wall ideas. The best strategy is to add a layer of 20mm plywood over the drywall or bare studs. That gives you a continuous fastening surface so you can mount storage hardware easily, arrange items in a space-efficient way, and cram more stuff onto the wall.
Fishing rod organiser
We got sick and tired of our fishing rods getting tangled, so we came up with this easy fishing rod organisr. All you need is a length of PVC pipe and a foam swimming pool noodle for this DIY garage storage system.
Drill 2cm holes spaced every 10cm in the PVC pipe. Use a utility knife to cut slits in the foam noodle, spacing them 10cm apart. Line up the pool noodle on the wall so that at least two of the slits sit over studs. Pull those slits apart, slide in a fender washer and screw the noodle to the wall with 5cm screws. Then screw the PVC pipe to the wall beneath it at a comfortable height and insert your fishing rods. Look Ma, no more tangles!
